View of Hill Rise
A late-Victorian postcard of Hill Rise, Richmond-upon-Thames, published by 'LL' with the catalogue number 878. Looking north-west down the hill towards Hill Street, with Compass Hill sloping down towards the left of view and the bakery and tea rooms of C. Banks shown prominently with its rounded corner panel, painted signage and the HOVIS brand above its parapet, at the corner with The Vineyard. The row of shops shown to the left once extended to the junction with Lower Street, now known as Petersham Road, but by the 1950s only part of the row survived, and the remaining buildings were demolished in the 1960s leaving the wooded embankment seen today. The shop shown on the corner of Compass Hill, then numbered 49, carries painted signage to its flanking wall for DRESSMAKING, MILLINERY, CORSETS & BLOUSES. The buildings shown opposite, mostly with awnings, date back to the eighteenth century, still stand and some retain nineteenth-century shop fronts. They now form part of the historic townscape of the Central Richmond conservation area. Beyond C. Banks, the decorated frontage of the dairy and creamery, now known as 84 Hill Rise, still has ‘J. Clarke & Sons’ set in mosaic to its front entrance and was Grade II listed in 1983; listing number: 1357709. Further along, before the taller three-storey building, The Victoria public house at 78 Hill Rise is also Grade II listed; listing number: 1065434. The cast-iron standard, just visible the foreground by the post box on the corner of The Vineyard, still stands today and is Grade II listed; listing number: 1065320. The even more impressive cast-iron gas lamp shown on the corner of Compass Hill has since gone. The three-storey house shown to the right with a tree in its front garden, now at 2 Richmond Hill, is also Grade II listed; listing number: 1181263. A few elegantly dressed women and children are also shown browsing and walking along the street.
